[UAE] British Expats Return Home As Pandemic Hurts UAE Economy

02 JUL 2020

Many British expatriates in the UAE, left without jobs in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, have been selling their possessions in an attempt to put together some money before making a return to the UK. This according to Telegraph reporting.

The Telegraph reported that "thousands of expats have been made redundant" because of the pandemic’s devastating impact on the UAE economy. The situation is expected to improve as lockdown measures are lifted but the report said it might take years for the UAE’s economy to fully recover. With no other choice but to return home, the expat community have put everything from their gym subscriptions to their cars up for sale. The Express Tribune has more on this developing story.
